Biography

Born in a small industrial town outside Stuttgart in 1975, Moritz Junge developed a passion for theatre and live performance as a very young child. Early forays onto the stage were stymied when he developed a stammer in his early teens and he realised that his destiny in theatre lay behind the scenes. Costume, the manifestation of the non-verbal role in the performing arts, held a natural appeal and at age 16 he took up a tailoring apprenticeship to pursue this route.

Moritz continued his studies at the university of the arts in Berlin before coming to London to complete his MA in set and costume design at the Slade School of Fine Art under the tutorage of Philip Prowse and Yolanda Sonnabend. in 2001 he was the overall winner of the Linbury Prize, the UK’s most prestigious award for graduates in stage design. Following his degree show his first job was with Tom Cairns, co-designing the set for the world premiere of Tom Ades’ The Tempest which opened in 2004 at the Royal Opera House, for which he also designed the costumes.

Moritz has worked consistently since, completing commercial projects alongside his commissions in theatre, opera and dance.
